I have been using firefox for a while now mainly because the power and memory use is much lower than Chrome. However, the other day I was using firefox and had 1 google doc tab open when my Mac have me a warning that it was out of memory. The main user of memory was Firefox, using 60 gb of memory, despite the fact that my laptop only has 8 gb of memory. I didnt get a picture as my laptop crashed soon after. Is this a common issue and what can i do to resolve it?
